I can't resist. "Don't Fret, someone will be helpful eventually."

comment Early-intermediate Ralph Vaughan Williams Piano?
@oge normally I'd shrug, but as part of the beta process I agree with you. Advertising discussions of topicality and such is good.

I'm embarassed to say that the only Dies Irae that I'm sure that I recognize is not the same melody as Danse Macabre, which may well merely indicate a lacuna in my musical education.

I'm not sure I care to call this in the same bucket with attempts to play shazam by remote control with pop songs, but that's just my opinion.

@Ras Um, a list of pieces of music on the theme of 'Danse Macabre' doesn't shed much light on the melodic antecedents of Saint-Saens.

@Ras I started there. I didn't spot anything in the Danse Macabre page on wikipedia, did I miss something, or is there some interesting connection drawn on some other page?
